Outdoor advertising revenue sets a steady climb

As advertising spending continues a steady growth, it can be a benchmark in America’s return to a healthy economy.

Out-of-home advertising has steadily recovered from the recent economic downturn. Reported by MediaPost, the first quarter of 2011 marks the fourth quarter in a row in which the out-of-home advertising industry has posted growth in revenue.

The Outdoor Advertising Association of America attributes the consistent increase with a few causes. The first being that some industry categories have spent more like financial, media & advertising, and communications. Also, some categories have stepped up spending like educational institutions. That alone jumped 21.1% in spending from 2010 to $59 million.

The second reason behind the growth is the transition into digital advertising. Digital billboards and other out-of-home displays are vastly expanding and replacing, in some cases, traditional forms. This move has allowed outdoor companies to charge advertisers by dayparts, which can lead to more revenue.
